Ardith's Kitchen...

Those of you who know me or have been following my blog are aware that I lost my grandmother, Ardith, this last October. It has been a painful time as she was very dear to me. A couple of weeks ago, while visiting my Dad, we went over to Ardith's house. She lived just a few blocks from Dad.

I had been thinking about how much Ardith loved to cook, and what an excellent cook she was. It came to me that I would love to have some of her everyday kitchen items. Regular things like wooden spoons, dish towels, mixing bowls, Pyrex dishes, cutting boards. When I asked my Dad if I could take some home with me, he said of course. So here are some of her kitchen things that I just love. They make me think of her and make me very happy. I think I love the colors of her dish towels and pot holders most of all.

I'm going to start a series soon. Little stories of Ardith. I hope you will feel in a way that you know Ardith too through the stories I write. Thanks for visiting, friends.

I look forward to reading more about your grandmother - I miss my grandparents to this day and treasure small and large mementos from all of them. Big hug! xo
